You will see literally thousands of roses in Vienna's public rose gardens of the Volksgarten, Burggarten, and Rathauspark. You will visit Schönbrunn Palace, the Habsburg summer residence, and view the Imperial Rose Gardens. You'll also see the gardens, ponds and man-made lake of Laxenburg Castle and the unique, Baroque gardens of the Schlosshof and Halbthurn Castles.

One of the tour highlight for rose lovers is a trip to the Imperial town of Baden, home of the famous Rose Days, where some sixty years ago a Rosarium was established in the park of a former palace (30,000 rose plants, more than 600 species). The forgotten work of the Austrian rose breeder, Rudolf Geschwind, finally found its proper place in today's rose world there.

The other great new event for this tour is the visit to Felling Castle in the Kamp Valley, in the hands of the Counts of Gudenus since 1654. AND the present Count Gudenus will conduct a private tour through the terraced garden and the rosarium - 800 different roses, blooming from May till December - the largest private Central European collection of fragrant roses.
